# What is the conversion formula for converting to a cetrigrade scale?

I would like to convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius cetrigrade scale.

With the Fahrenheit scale those temperatures are 32 and 212 respectively. To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius, use this formula: F = (9/5)*C + 32. Multiply the Celsius temperature by 9/5, then add 32 to that number.

This will give you the degrees in Celsius. You can also do the reverse (add 32 and multiply by 5/9) to convert it back into Farenheit.

 +1 vote! +5 you voted Answer by  Clement (1453) To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius you need first to subtract 32 and then multiply the result by 5/9. If fractions are not your strongest point, instead of multiplying by 5/9 just divide by 1. 8: c = (f - 32) / 1. 8

 +1 vote! +4 you voted Answer by  amswplusone (652) Converting Centigrade to Fahrenheit is done by multiplying by 9/5, then adding 32 to that result. So to undo that and go from Fahrenheit to Centigrade, subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature, then multiply that result by 5/9. Just remember that Fahrenheit to Centigrade yields a smaller number (for temperatures above -40 degrees)) so use 5/9 to shrink the temperature.
